A trip to the zoo

My younger 5 years old May is a more independent child. Thus, I reckon I neglect her sometimes, as her big sister is in Primary 1, we focus on her primary education more.

Friday, May's kindergarten organized a trip to zoo. I signed her up, and I took a day off to join the trip together with her. I wanted to show her that I also care for her and her activity in school.

Reach the zoo by bus and assemble at the entrance.  
The teacher wanted them to hold the hand of one classmate while touring the zoo, in order to allow the teacher to spot who was missing immediately.
 The children are very cute and innocent. They got excitedly easily.
 They stoped at each corner to tell the name of the animal in BM, Chinese and English.
 The teacher was giving some explanation on the different types of the animal that they saw.
 They walked in a group of classmates that in the same class and led by the form teacher.

Teachers had done a very good job in guiding the children. The children too learned a  lot of things that they couldn't learn in the classroom. Next year, I don't think that I need to accompany her in this type of trip anymore. 
After touring for about 1.5 hours, the children were dropped dead tired and hungry. Teachers gave each of them a hot dog bun and a bottle of water.
Before leaving the zoo, a group photo was taken. The form teacher was arranging the children for the shot.
I took May home with my car, and the rest was taking bus back to the kindergarten.

It was a tired day for me too. I was supposed to be in office enjoying the cool air-con, but I went to the zoo under the hot sun. I was a bit regret half way through the trip. Thank Goodness that May said to me after  we both had woke up from the 2 hours nap, she said that she will be alright to go to the zoo visit alone next year.

  4. Its no joke taking care of the kids in the zoo, heavy responsibility for the teacher. Great! May wants to be independent and to be on her own next year. Guess travelling in the bus with the gang should be fun for her too.

  13. Kids just love going to the zoo, right? I think they can go there every year without getting bored! Chloe's class visited the zoo early this year too but I didn't follow.

  14. Interesting for the kids. Walking under the hot sun is no fun but accompanying your girl is worth it.

  17. Hi Sheoh Yan, nice pics.
    Noticed only one teacher escorting so many kids?
    Here at this age, it will be 5 or 6 kids, one teacher.
    And at kindergartens, there'll always be several teachers when kids in the playground, keeping an eye on them.

    Love the colour of their uniforms.
    Where is the zoo? Still same place in Taiping?
    I remember visiting the zoo wayyyy back in the '70s.
    Have a nice day.
    Lee.
